I just booked my flight for a trip to NY this fall, its the first time I go there, even the first time I go to the States, so I’m extremely excited and happy. Finally, going to the city of my dreams, checking out the jazzclubs, shopping for records and maybe some guitar stuff, it’s goinig to be AMAZING!!
However, I’m also already pretty horrified by all the reports of bed bugs and roaches beeing all over town. It seems like it is almost impossible to find a place, no matter how expansive, that is not inhabited by those bastards.
When it comes to bugs, midges and roaches I’m totally neurotic, I can barely look at them, let alone sleep in a bed where they might appear...As much as I look forward to this trip, I’m afraid this could really fuck it up for me..
So now my question to all of you who have already visited NY or even lived there for some time: How to best deal with that issue?
Is there any place known that is clean and free of bed bugs?
If you had some in your bed, what did you do to not bring them home with your laundry?
Anyone has experience with some of the gadgets available, like anti bed bug linnen and pillows, some sort of spray, basically anything to keep those bastards away from sucking my blood?
I’d really appreciate any help to make my stay over there more enjoyable!
